Summer is winding down and it is hard to believe in just three months we will be back at the polling booths for the upcoming General Election on November 8th! 

A big thank you to everyone who helped to support our Democratic candidates in the Primary Election! Whether it was knocking doors, attending events, putting up signs, writing post cards to local voters, spreading the word on who were the best candidates, or making contributions to campaigns, it all mattered and made an impact!

In addition, a big thank you to all volunteers who spent their time helping out at early voting locations and on the day of the day of the Primary; persisting through the Southern Maryland summer heat and humidity (and occasional rain.) 

 

Congratulations to the Democratic candidates who were successful in the Primary Election.

Upcoming Election Judge Opportunities for State Employees on Election Day - November 8


 

Dear Friends and Supporters,

We did it! Thank you for your support in the primary election. I appreciate how hard everyone worked-- knocking doors, hosting events, contributing financially, spreading the word, and most importantly, voting!  After the votes were counted, we resoundingly won with over 80% of the vote. I am honored by your support.
 
Going into the general, we can't take anything for granted. We will again face former delegate, Deb Rey.

The most competitive race in the state is upon us, and we want to continue the work we've started in Annapolis.  To do that, we have to work hard to win-- our opponent is a relentless campaigner. She took this seat from then Chair of Appropriations, John Bohanan, in 2014, and I will be doing everything I can not to let that happen again. However, I have no doubt that I am going to need your help and energy over the next 100 days to make sure that I can continue bringing resources to the people of St. Mary's County.

Here is how you can help:
CONTRIBUTE
Unfortunately, this race will cost a lot of money. Asking for your contributions is my least favorite part of running for office, but it is necessary. Any help you can give means a lot.
VOLUNTEER WITH US
Click the button above to join Team Crosby!  After signing up, you will be on our "team" email list, which is how you will get notified of meetings, volunteer opportunities, and more.

I look forward to seeing you and working with you over the next three months to ensure that 29B stays blue!
Respectfully,
Brian
